House Democrats Demand Hearing into Jared Kushner Business Dealings

Democrats are looking for a little revenge against Republicans who are raking Hunter Biden over the coals.

To that point, Democrats are now requesting that the House hold hearings on Jared Kushner.

Kushner, who is married to Ivanka Trump, received a $2 billion investment from the Saudis after Trump left office and, more recently, is considering major real estate deals in Albania and Serbia.

Tit for Tat

I have actually covered this before, stating at the time that Kushner received the money from the Saudis that it looked a bit fishy.

However, the difference between Hunter and Kushner is that Kushner has experience in the area where foreign investors are pouring in money, while Hunter has none.

The question that needed to be answered, however, is if Kushner’s bounty was in reward for the Trump administration not pressing the Saudis regarding the death of Jamal Khashoggi, a journalist, who was allegedly assassinated at the request of the Crown Prince.

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, and Rep. Robert Garcia (D-CA) penned a letter to their GOP counterparts asking them to investigate the matter.

The letter, in part, stated, “This Committee cannot claim to be ‘investigating foreign nationals’ attempts to target and coerce high-ranking U.S. officials’ family members by providing money or other benefits in exchange for certain actions’ while continuing to ignore these matters.

“We therefore urge you to work with us to finally investigate Mr. Kushner’s receipt of billions of dollars from foreign governments in deals that appear to be quid pro quos for actions he undertook as senior White House adviser in Donald Trump’s Administration.”

People making a windfall after leaving an administration is nothing new, as we see it on both sides of the aisle all the time.

But, as I noted above, Hutner was allegedly doing business to benefit Joe Biden while Joe Biden was in office.

Kushner’s deals all came about after having left the administration.

As sleazy and underhanded as some may see it, as long as the policy was not being impacted while he was in office, nothing was illegal.

The only way Kushner’s deals would be considered in the same bracket as Hunter’s deals is if they could prove that Kushner was doing political favors while Trump was in office and told that he would be given that large investment after he left as payment for those favors.

I have zero tolerance for political corruption, so I say investigate away.

And if Trump and Kushner knew they did nothing wrong, they would invite the investigation to take place so that everything was above water.

History here is in Kushner’s favor, as he was an established businessman before joining Trump’s administration and quickly picked up his business deals after leaving office.

This, however, is a warning shot being fired across the bow of the Trump campaign because rest assured, in this day and age of tit-for-tat politics, if Trump wins the election and the Dems take back the House, you better believe they will investigate this.
